Downstairs the Earl was telling Geraint that last night the Sparrow-hawk had sent back all their treasures.
There was a later Geraint who fought against the Saxon Ina in 710.
In the hall Geraint dismounted and left his horse, and his host took him into an upper chamber where were two women.
And Geraint thought it was not possible that so poor a place could help him in what he desired.
I care not,” said Geraint, “though it displease him that I sit in the chair.
Sir Geraint asked where was Earl Inewl and his wife and daughter.
But Sir Geraint couched his lance, and caught the other on the edge of his shield, and the spear passed through his body.
And the knight smiled at the rusty arms and shield of Sir Geraint.

So that Sir Geraint should die, he commanded that no leech should be sent for.
